2600 block of E Franklin Ave

E Franklin Ave & Seward Neighborhood certainly has a few murals; this one is on the side of a building directly across the street from Zipps Liquor & its own mural.

Articulture, 2009 has a listing of the contributors.

Modern advertising turns old

Seems like many businesses used to paint advertising on the sides of buildings... seems to be a think of the past; Zipp's Liquor did have this beer advertising on its E Franklin ave side.

A tattoo for a wall

I've driven past this waaayyy to many times not carrying a camera. This upper level of this house/building on E40th & Minnehaha Ave in Minneapolis has a great set of images sprayed onto the wooden planks. It's almost like the building has a tattoo on it. Love it!

Make every wall count

Happened to be driving down the street from checking out a tattoo shop when I almost drove past this mural located on the side of Deals N Discounts (2815 East Lake Street Minneapolis).

The mural is tagged by so I'm assuming its their crafty work. I enjoyed it for sure. Was a nice treat along Lake St in MPLS.

A neighborhood welcome
